Go try it and come back and tell us.

* Be sure to turn TRAC off.
* Be sure to gate shift. (Practice first if you need to.)
* Be sure to brake torque to 3000rpm. (Practice first if you need to, but don't do this too often. Let the tranny cool down between each try.)

Better yet, invite him to attend an autocross, track day, or any sort of timed road-course event with you and soundly + assuredly beat him. (Assuming you know how to drive.)

dunno about that man...i heard v6 auto 03 accords would run low 15's in 1/4 mile. I have mostly heard of high 15's to low 16's for the auto IS.
am i wrong?

Odds are, you will lose. I just bought an 03' Accord EX last saturday, and they have a pretty strong pickup in them. Then again it has been awhile since I have driven my IS with just an intake, to compare, but I say you would lose!! IMO!!

Well, if you are gonna go by the numbers of auto rags, then the Accord will take it. But the numbers are close enough to make it a drivers race. Let us know how it goes. One of the only things I can think of that will put you ahead of him is if you do the power brake thing and if he spins his tires at launch since fwd cars with alot of power tend to do that.

show no respect to Fwd and honda transmission..... race him, it'll be close but i'm pretty confident that you'll win with a moderate amount of knowledge of how your car feels.
1) Race with low tank of fuel
2) trac off/ ext pwr on
3) a/c to vent outside-in
4) brake torque and feather at 2600
as far as gate shifting or Eshift. I really see no difference. Eshift seems to be more useful for DownShifting for curvy roads. just my opinion.
Goodluck. Race him and let us know how it turned out.

I have seen auto ISs at the track get low 15s...its kinda slow off the line but from mid to high end...auto IS should be right there with auto accord.

hahahahaha good one. I guess this only works if
1) The pony doesn't fall apart. How many recalls did Ford have on the stang? Oh I forgot. They stopped production.
2) Unless you find some trailer park trash (Very rare to be seen in an import) that isn't aware that domestic owners consciously try to make up for there lack of manhood by revving at a light and going in straight lines in automatics. oh ya back to the point...you guys aren’t getting the chick either.

I betcha you wearing a Stone Cold Steve Austin T-shirt right now. hahaha

I don't know what kind of women you guys pull but I have been beating them off with a stick ever since I got my yellow stang. You all need to show some damn respect for America and its fine automobiles. I am disgusted by the amount of stupid comments I have read on this board
